Hello folks,

I am the author of Bishop3D, a POV-Ray modeler for MS-Windows platform. For 
a series of events I was forced to put that project on hold but now I’m back 
at it.

Approximately six months ago I slowly started to work on a new version based 
on Qt (http://qt-project.org) and Bullet physics* 
(http://bulletphysics.org).
After some considerations about my progress rate, I’ve decided to release 
the project under GNU GPL V3 license hopping to get it completed sooner than 
later.

Please, don’t get me wrong; I *am* actively working on that project on my 
spare time and eventually it will reach a beta release milestone - but I can 
use some help to get there faster :)
If you are interested please check bishop3d.com/blog/archives/237

The current Bishop3D version is now freeware, free as in free beer - there 
is no point in making it open source since it is based on Borland (now 
Embarcadero) proprietary tools.

Best regards,
H. Arnaut

*the integration with Bullet physics is not done yet but the changes in the 
modeler kernel in order to support such integration are already in place.
